could be a boost leak, it will make sounds like you would not believe, tighten and inspect all the "boots" and look to see if the intake gasket has not blown out (if you removed the fuel filter canister)

First off get the error code definitons from a Dodge Factory Service Manual not a generic site... Everything Over P1000 is a make and model specific code and generic site can't seem to define it properly...

OBD II Error Codes

Then...

P0460 - Fuel Level Unit No Change Over Miles Fuel level sending unit voltage does not change for more than 40 miles.
(Fuel sender is shot and need replacing most likely)
P1693 - DTC Detected in PCM/ECM or DTC Detected in ECM
A Companion DTC was set in both the ECM and PCM.
(Companion code. Just means there is more codes present.)

My fuel gauge works great lol..... And sorry I wrote the topic about a noise im hearing from the motor area like The drone of maybe a ps pump or the screachy whooshin sound when accelerate it gets louder but not louder than the motor make since? Anyhow I got it narrowed down on that to a vac. pump, ps pump, or a pully perhaps.
back to the code, like i said My fuel gauge works fine. Believe me when it says E im on E :banghead: any other reason could have that code?
